Hello, once again!
I've been digging through the books and I'm about to bring in a small-scale battle (relatively) into the campaign. And I'm a little confused, I have to admit.
-Why is Power Score better when it's lower? What does it affect, or what is it exactly?
-What modifiers affect Warfare Combat rolls, does such things as BAB count?
I'm sure I'll probably have more questions as I read through this more.... But those were the immediate questions I had, as well as the ones I couldn't find the answer to.
Thanks for your help!
The warfare sections are indeed a large wall of text, its natural to get a bit confused when reading them for the first time ;)
For the first question:
"To make a successful Hit, the group rolls a d20, adds any relevant modifiers and if the final result is equal or higher than the group’s Power Score, then a successful Hit is delivered to the enemy." pag 334, top of the right column.
So the lower the Power Score, the higher the chance of getting a 'hit'
For ground warfare, the modifiers applied are those described in Situation and Geographic Bonuses section, page 335, which are applied to all characters and NPCS. Player related modifiers are described in Special Units, on pag 341
BAB is not added, instead it counts levels in a given class.
